F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!
U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!
N is for NO SURVIVORS...
Now that's just friggin' AWESOME!!!
If it's not olive drab... SHOOT IT!!!
It is quite the beast in person. They had one in the Ft.Polk museum back in the 80s, (along with an AH-56 Cheyenne!) and several were gunnery target hulks out on the ranges at Ft Polk as well. I got to shoot two of those hulks with live TOW missiles back then. Those were some expensive fireworks...
Yeah I knew it's a large vehicle but I had no idea till I got to stand beside one. A museum near here in Danville Virginia has one.
Dang, the Gama Goat and then this baby! It's like the Cold War is here again! When it's just the scaled down version and not the real thing, I like it a lot! Thanks for the news, have a nice day
All comments and critique welcomed. Thanks for your honest opinions!
Yup, and we got that new M48 from Dragon, plus the pair of 151s (Grenada & Vietnam) from Tamiya and Meng announcing a new Leopard 1A3/A4. Trumpeter is still going strong with Soviet armor announcing a new T-72 and T-80... Great days for us Cold War AFV modelers.
Nice, I took a few pics of one of these beasts at the Mech Museum at Camp Pendleton, it was definitely way impressive up close.
here is the one at Ft Hood

WOW!! That is just wicked!! Glad to see more of these less famous AFVs from the big kit makers!!
Thanks for the post Stik!!
Now we just need a Conqueror and I'll be happy
In a couple weeks, I will be in Syracuse, NY. The nearby USMC Reserve Center in Mattydale has a M103A2 on display. Seems like a good time for a photo shoot....
remember who you friends are here at FSM. used to be one at ft knox back in the 70s. who knows now.
If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane in the queue BM-21, URAL-4320, M-1117, DANA, SS-25, UNIMOG THW
